    The old quarry stone walls, the original function of which cannot be seen by the viewer, together with the little rapids of the Burgholzbach create a romantic ambience.

    Who doesn't like going "over the Wupper" here? We know, no matter in which direction we are headed, things are now going "upwards" and properly.

    At the Burgholzbach there are reservoirs that held water to drive hammer mills and grinding heads (see also Kotten) from the early industrialization period.

    "... The Burgholzbach is a 3.335 kilometer long tributary of the Wupper in the Burgholz state forest in the Wuppertal district of Cronenberg. An earlier name is Diepenbach.
    The Burgholzbach, with its deep valley, shapes the core area of the Burgholz. It rises at 284 m above sea level. NN near the Neuenhof outdoor pool in the Cronenberg district of Küllenhahn, flows westward past the Burggrafenberg and flows after 3.335 km at 120 m above sea level. NN in the Wupper. The outdoor pool is supplied with heat from the nearby Wuppertal waste incineration plant so that it can be used all year round.
    At the Burgholzbach there are reservoirs that held water to power hammer mills and grinding docks from the early industrialization period. The Nöllenhammer, which also housed the Cronenberg waterworks, consisting of five wells and a pumping station, was still preserved until 2009. From the Kremershammer, founded in 1607 shortly before the mouth of the Burgholzbach in the Wupper, only the foundation walls are preserved. From the Bremershammer, the Plätzershammer, the Evertshammer and the Nöllenkotten, however, there are hardly any traces left. There were a total of four hammer mills and two grinding docks on the stream.
    On a mountain spur between the brook and the Wupper was the early medieval ring wall system Burggraben. ... "

    Very beautiful brook valley, ideal for hiking and also ideally suited for bicycles.

    The Wupper can be seen in the photos.
    The Burgholzbach flows into the Wupper in peace policy.

    February 2021: Ankle-deep mud awaits us on Burgholzbach, the forest work with heavy equipment has left its mark. Contrary to plan, we choose the northern path along the stream, the southern one is a mud desert.
    Impressive amounts of water tumble from all sides into the overcrowded Burgholzbach and cause the ponds to overflow.
    So much water, hopefully there will be enough for the coming summer.

    A small stream of great importance, it supplies the surrounding villages with drinking water.
